Federal, state, city  and county officials were on hand as Harrison Industries celebrated its 85th anniversary. Harrison unveiled its state-of-the art compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station with 26 pumps at the company’s Saticoy yard.

Keynote speaker Bill Camarillo, CEO of Agromin, one of Harrison’s strategic partners, lauded the Harrisons for their efforts toward cleaner air. “We’ve come a long way but we still have a lot to do,” Camarillo said.

According to Mike Harrison, engineering manager for Harrison Industries, the CNG system includes two 250-horsepower compressor units that compress natural gas to over 3,500 pounds per square inch into CNG, as well as a computerized monitoring unit for its fueling stations.

Harrison Industries has long been working to reduce its impact on climate change by understanding its carbon footprint. In 2003 the company opened the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station in western Ventura County. Harrison has furthered its commitment to the environment by also adding 33 LNG-dedicated and 15 CNG-dedicated trucks to the fleet and three more on order.
